Election-conscious politicians of both parties must have rubbed their hands together in & gesture of eager anticipation last week when a member of the White House staff foresaw a ?2 billion surplus upcoming at the end of the current fiscal year. Question for them was, "Who's going to be the first to reduce taxes?" Undoubtedly, we hope, some more far-sighted statesmen are weighing this news more conservatively and keeping in mind world conditions and the state of U. S. economy. First, there is no indication the U. S., in the future, won't have to spend more and more, in more and more varied fields for defense, Second, what is now a boom economy, must be carefully nurtured and sometimes checked, lest it gorge itself on inflation and lead to a certain "bust." "bust." From every reliable source, the American economy at thi stime is at something of a peak. Therefore, it must be assumed that tax cuts are not necessarily justifiable. Of course, every family pocketbook would wear better with a deeper green lining, but even the American people must subjugate their own desires at times in order to have a sound nation . . .albeit not many of them are very quick to face up to it often. Then, too, after piling up a larger national debt year after year, it's sort of comforting to know that this nation for once in this generation is spending within its budget. Rather startling to know it, too. Perhaps there are men in both parties who can resist trading a tax-cut for a stable economy. If so, they certainly are going to have an oportunitpy to demonstrate their devotion to public service. The Farm Bil| Veto President Eisenhower's veto of the 1956 farm bill was undoubtedly the toughest single decision he has had to make in the domestic field since he took office more than three years ago. Leading farm state Republicans, many Democrats and a considerable number of armer spokesmen exerted enormous pressure on the President to sign the bill. From many came the warning that a veto could spell a major farm revolt at the polls in this* presidential election year. Unrest in miclwestern farm areas is acknowledged, and the Minnesota and Wisconsin primaries suggested some of this may turn into Democratic votes in November. Despite it all, Mr. Eisenhower stood firm in behalf of the flexible pric* •up- port principle to which he and Secretary of Ajriculture.'Benson have long committed themselves. The farm bill passed by Congress still asserts that principle, but in fact it is reduced to tatters by a series of hashed- up amendments whose purpose is to restore the old rigid high price supports for major crops. Unhappily, the bill was such a hodgepodge at the end that even farm experts could not be sure how it would work in practice. Thus patched together on the Senate floor and in Senate-House conference, it was not a model of good legislation. Mr. Eisenhower saw it as a bad bill, even though it contained the "soil bank" feature he so earnestly desired to help slash the mountain of farm surpluses towering over the nation's farmers. In his veto message, he appealed for a new measure setting forth this plan alone. Obviously, too, he was concerned to add right now to the income of farmers plagued by falling prices, drought and the uncertainty over farm legislation. He promised to take prompt action to raise price supports on five basic crops, dairy products, and perishable farm commodities. The increase should hike farmers' 1956 income by more than half a billion dollars, though this would be well short of what they could have realized under the vetoed measure. In no case would the boosts bring the support level to the 90 per cent plane sought by backers of rigid supports. Speculation will be great as to how much damage the President may have done his political cause by this veto. First samplings from farmers suggets that the reaction will be far from uniform. Many farmers disapprove of high supports. Others admire Mr. Eisenhower for sticking to his guns. Still other, smarting under the. income drop, nevertheless stand with the President because they link him with peace and general mastery of world affairs. Some think the bill was aproved too late by Congress and thus wouldn't have helped enough in 1956, anyway. But unquestionably a good many will see in this action reason for turning their troubled feelings into antiadmin- istration votes next November. In the interest of consistency, aclher- rence to principle, and what he considered good farm policy, Mr. Eisenhower decide! lie had no choice but to dare the wrath of these farmers—however large or small they might bulk at voting time. VIEWS OF OTHERS A Silly Idea We are inclined to asree with Representative Quigley of Pennsylvania that it is a ridlculousu plan to bring housewives to Washington at government expense to tell what sort of house they would like to have. His statement waa directed at a proposal by House Administrator Albert M. Cole to conduct a woman's congress on housing. The session would b6 attended by women selected from among those responding to a recent invitation from Cole telling him how the modern home can be improved. Inasmuch as the government does not build houses but only insures the mortgages on them, it would be fowlish to p»y the expenses of women Washington and in addition allow them f!2 a day in expense money. Why shouldn't these women deal with the builders instead of with the government? Not only that but it, appears to us that Administrator Cole could get enough out of his letters to satisfy his need which he said is a federal study of the minimum requirements set for homes eligible for government backed mortgages insurance. Compared to some other government outlays this matter of bringing the housewives to Washington would not run into big money. It is just another one of thuso little extravagances which set n bad pxamplt: mid MM've as addition straws on the camel's back. — Shelby iN.C.J Daily Star.

There definitely Is room for both public and private power—Outgoing Interior Department Secretary Douglas McKay. Let nobody be mistaken. This iacid hurling attack against labor columnist Victor Riesel) is one of the most diabolical plots hatched by the worst ganster elements in our society. —Sen.

Spiked Ersktne Johnson IN HOLLYWOOD Peter Edson's Washington Column — Trips Abroad Helped Kefauver In Forming His Foreign Policy By PETER EDSON NEA Washington! Correspondent WASHINGTON —(NEA)— No candidate should .aspire to the U.S. presidency without some garsp of foreign affairs. So how does Sen. Estes Kefauver of Tennessee qualify on this count? Being too young for World War I and too old for World War IT, Kefauver has no overseas military record. He was elected to Congress In 1939. In ihe Senate since 1948, he has served on the Armed Services Committee. This has given him a schooling on national defense, and he haa junketed to many, overseas bases. To build up his knowledge of international affairs, Kefauver made a trip around the world last year. He talked with Premier Bul- ganln and Communist Secretary Khrushchev in Moscow, Nehru in India. President Rhee In Korea. Kefauver also made a swing through Poland, Hungary and Czechoslovakia. He visited Southeast Asia's trouble spots. It is from these personal con tacts, plus his general experience in Congress, that Kefauver has built up the foreign policy program he Is now offering to American voters. On the number one issue of re- latioa-i with Russia, Kefauver told the Overseas Press Club in New York nfter his trip around the world: "Frankly, I am in favor of more trade with Russia. We have more to gain than they do. . . "I don't think a change In Russia will again come through revolution. The hope is that new leaders, as, yet uncrowned, will understand that our system produces more than theirs. "But don't misunderstand me," he hastened to add. "I am not talking about Russia's present leadership. Bulganin and Khrushchev make a smart and effective team. ... I am personally willing to match the Soviet step by step. But I would not abandon NATO or the Voice of America and I would not drop our guard for some time to come." With regard to. the satellite countries, Kefauver declared that: "We must iceep up their courage and anticipate the day when they can win over tha forces of communism. We must take the initiative in opening up the satellite nations." Kefnuver's views on Southeast Asia were revealed in a later talk before the Indiana state Teachers Association. "The future of Southeast Asia will be determined by a bitter struggle between India and China," he predicted. "All the Asians want to know Is if they must sacrifice personal liberties in exchange for enough to eat. China says, 'Yes.' India says, 'No.' If China wins, It won't be long until the Red Star is over Asia. If India wins, democracy, wins. I "This poses a difficult problem for us," Kefauver said in summary. "Until recently, America was the ideal of freedom-loving peoples. Asia now doubts us. We must assist in an unobtrusive way, remaining in the background." Kefauver's policy on the more current Middle East crisis was oultined during his Florida primary campaign. He criticized the Eisenhower administration for falling to explain that preservation of peace depended on U.S. help to Israel in obtaining arms for self- defense. His proposed solution is a top- level conference of Jews, Arabs, Americans, British and French to search for peace. "If these negotiations should fail," he said, "we would at least know what the score is and could act accordingly." Kefauver has also critized the Eisenhower administration for failing to take a firm position on Quemoy and Matsu, for allowing NATO relations to deteriorate and for having lost the initiative in thi cold war against Russia, "Under my administration," s.aid Kefauver in announcing he would run for the Democratic presidential nomination, "the door would always be open to all genuine approaches for a peaceful world, no matter what the source. Meanwhile, we have no choice but, to support our great defense efforts and maintain our position of strength throughout the world." the Doctor Says - Bv Written for NEA Service EDWIN P. JORDAN, M. D. By EDWIN P. JORDAN, M.D. Written for NEA Service I suppose hundreds of thousands of parents at one time or another have worried ft bout their children's speech—particularly about :he most important difficulty, stuttering. One mother asks about, her three-year-old child who has never talked except to say "da da" or "ma ma." A 16-year-old hoy says that until u year ago his speech was perfectly normal but now he finds he is beginning to stutter . Another correspondent asks whether there is nny scientific! basis for the theory that forcing n child who is left-handed to use the; risht hand may result in speech impairment. The exact cause of speech defects, including stuttering, is not ; known. Some believe that children' may be born pro-disposed to speech disorders. Also, sex plays some obscure i part since there are nearly five! limes as many boys who stuttei : as girls. | It is my impression that there) is not as much weight given now! as there used to be to the idea (hat forcing a left-handed child to' use the right hand causes stutter-j it.g. It is not wise to m.ike a loft- handed child use tlit 1 n<-:u hand j But, a broad view expressed by Dr ! Barbara tn. a book nn siuue: 1 !:^; (Julian Press, 55» says, "Stuttering j is not to be considered as an iso-! laleri disorder of the speech tnech- ! anism but as an nut ward rxpios-J ston of B more basic character disorganization." . The attack on speech defects 'Including slutlcnn?' should rom<> as soon as possible utter .such difficulty Is first noticed, H is important so get good advice since the management ol speech defects depends, to a considerable decree, on the understanding by the parents and their handling of the situation. Furher. more, there may be things in the home environment about which the parents - are thoroughly unaware which are affecting the child' speech. Much has been learned about stuttering' and other speech defects and their treatment during recent years. The results of proper .treatment are often exceedingly good. In most cases a stutterer, or a child with some other speech defect, should have expert guidance from one of the speech clinics spotted around the country. Information on them can be obtained t'rom the National Society for Crippled Children and Adults, 11 South Ija Salle St., Chicago. The booklet on stuttering: prepared with the advice and guidance of the American Speech and Hearing Association and available through the National Society for Crippled Children and Adults is n i good source of information as is the book on stuttering by Dr Dominic Barbara previously men^ ' oned. It is Important to remember that a youngster with stuttering or other speech defect will not simply outgrow the difficulty. There fore, expert care should be sought as soon as possible or the youngster may be seriously hnn\nered in schoolwork or other activities. • JACOBY ON BRIDGE Partner Would Not Give Up Wrlttp alar NE.1 Scrrlrr By OSWALD JACOBS South had to lose a spade and a club in today's hand.

It was correct to drciini of slam when South opened the bidding. But North should have shown his strength and left the rest tip to South. The best way to handle such hands is to make a jump response to start. North should have jumped 10 three diamonds at his first turn. South would rcbid the spades, and North would then raise to four. ills sequence of bids by North would show a powerful hand, with slam possibilities. And this is exactly the message that North would want to transmit — a sort of, slam invitation without going Deyond game. South would be temped, but he would resist temptation. His open- ,ng bid is a minimum, and he has three smalJ cards in an un- 3id suit. Making slams without high cards is like making bricks ivithout straw: it can be done, but the odds are against it.
